A power outage in Ruidoso affected about 1,101 PNM customers Saturday night.

PNM tweeted that the cause of the outage stemmed from a car hitting a transmission pole that also damaged a distribution line that was attached.

The company originally reported they estimated power to be restored by 10:15 a.m. and while many had their power restored, others in the area were still affected.

A post made by the company later Sunday stated that workers have been working overnight to replace the power structure.
